ISLAMABAD   -     Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Friday issued a written order on the appeal filed by former Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani’s son Ali Mossa Gilani and Pakistan People’s Party leader Makhdoom Shahabuddinin seeking abrogation of anti-narcotics law sections from the ephedrine quota case against them.

The court dismissed the appeals of accused and ordered the relevant court to continue trial against them.

A division bench comprising Justice Mohsin Akhter Kiynai and Justice Fayyaz Ahmed Jandran issued a 14 pages judgment on the appeal of accused.

The court directed the trial court to record all evidence from the prosecution and then decide the Section 9C in the case. 

The court, subsequently, dismissed the appeals of accused.
